And even for you over there, I really don’t understand why WP and other big name brands have so little choice in metric. I think they miss out, really. I’d guess there would be quite a number of you buying both imperial and metric.
Size of market, I assume. Woodpeckers make pricey stuff, and the US probably has more woodworkers than every other well-off country combined. (The combination of high population, extremely high disposable income and the relative cheapness of housing space and lumber is basically unique and makes it a popular hobby in a way I don’t think most other countries can support.)

Very few people here use metric measurements: American Festool owners aren’t a representative sample because the brand itself acts as a filter for people who prefer or are at least indifferent to using metric in some areas.
